Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0The bouyant force is the one causing the object to float, it acts upward and balances de weight of the object. dw:1433515034504:dw this force depends on the density of the fluid, look for "archimedes principle" or "bouyant force" in your book/notes/internet !
